Urban Sustainability through Environmental Design

In recent years, there has been considerable success at repopulating urban centers. However, scholars have questioned whether these upscale environments and often isolated cultural developments are sustainable. This collection intends to provide analytical tools and practical methods that can be used to develop sustainable, long-term solutions for the management of responsive, lively, and safe urban environments. This book brings together views and approaches to urban development from across Europe, focusing on practical, sustainable solutions rather than quick-fix interventions.
